Some big changes could be coming to the sex education curriculum in Utah schools if one lawmaker gets his way.

Ethan Millard and Alex Kirry take a field trip to the local grocery store where supposedly they can buy Diet Coke in Ginger Lime, Feisty Cherry, Zesty Blood Orange and Twisted Mango. so far their quest has been foiled but they find some of the flavors at Dicks in Bountiful Utah.  They will come in a skinnier silver can, reminiscent of Red Bull's. And the company may have had another drink in mind when it mixed up the flavors -- LaCroix seltzer, which has attracted exactly the audience Coke is after, the crazy millennial types.

Ethan Millard checks out the new Indie Episodic competition at the Sundance Film Festival, in this interview with susaneLand creators Susane Lee and Andrew Olsen. 

SusaneLand is dark comedy storytelling in vignette form as we follow Lee's on-screen alter-ego, Susane, through clever and relatable experiences that tend to turn dark and twisty in a very Kafka way -- from deadly elevator farts to childhood violin lessons gone strange. 

The creative process behind filming susaneLand sounds fascinating in itself - the production was funded on IndieGogo, and Olsen and Lee are hoping to find a place to distribute their show at Sundance. As Lee herself told Ethan, it was exciting to be a part of a diverse show with equitable representation for women and people of color.

"High and Mighty" is a twist on the superhero genre, debuting at the Sundance Film Festival in the Indie Episodic competition. Jorge Diaz stars as Chelo, who finds out he has amazing powers after he survives a shooting. The catch is, he's only "super" when he's drunk or stoned. 

The interview with the cast and creator Cesar Mazariegos took some twists and turns Ethan didn't expect (and we hope our ownership is forgiving!), but it was also a lot of fun. Cesar explains that in Hollywood, to get noticed, you pitch your craziest idea, knowing it'll be rejected, but you'll get to make something else. But in his case, the crazy idea actually got greenlighted

It's not just a stoner comedy, though - with real three dimensional characters and struggles. For example, Diaz's Chelo doesn't want to be a pothead. He's genuinely trying to be a good example for his kid sister, working to get his act together -- raising a funny but real moral dilemma: if you discovered weed actually gave you superhuman abilities, would you choose to sober up and live a normal life, or do the drugs and save the world? 

High and Mighty comes from Stage 13, Warner Brothers' digital content brand.

Ethan and Alex were invited to the Studio 5 show with Brooke Walker because she found out that Alex and Ethan were watching their shows on the Nightside Project.  She wanted to know what the guys learned.  This specific episode was the one that taught you how to make bacon at home.  The guys also learned that they make the full dish beforehand.  They loved how poetic Brooke was on the Studio 5 episode.

Ethan Millard and Taylor Powers interview Brandon Wright, producer for the film I Am Gary Johnson.

Gary Johnson ran for President of The United States in 2016 as a candidate for the Libertarian Party.  His running mate was Bill Weld, the former Republican governor of Massachusetts.

Gary Johnson was a Republican governor of New Mexico before switching to the Libertarian Party.

2016 seemed like the perfect year for a Libertarian candidate.  Both the Republican and Democratic candidates, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, were widely disliked.  Johnson and Weld seemed like an opportunity to put a more familiar face on a smaller party.

The socially liberal and fiscally conservative profile of libertarianism appeals to a lot of people.  Young people and Millennials are particularly into it.  For some reason, they just won't break away from the Republican/ Democrat duopoly.

The film was directed by Brando Eaton (Zoey 101, Do Not Disturb, Dexter, The Secret Life Of The American Teenager, Melissa & Joey, Awkward) and produced by Danny Thompson (Flip Men, Pop Wrapped TV), and Brandon Wright.

The documentary includes behind the scenes footage of the presidential campaign.  In addition to Gary Johnson and Bill Weld, you'll see Mitt Romney, Mario DeAngelis,  Larry Sharpe, R.J. Lyman, Nicholas Sarwark, and Daniel Fishman.

Police say two truck trailers loaded with 44 tons (48.5 U.S. tons) of chocolate were stolen in southern Germany and there’s no sign of the sticky-fingered perpetrators.  Police said Monday the trailer is packed with 400,000 euros ($496,100) worth of chocolate were stolen from an industrial park in Freiburg on Friday night.  Plus, Ethan Millard and Alex Kirry talk about the #zenheadlines story of a little kitty cat who was saved by a stranger.   

A woman who says her cat saved her from suicide “cried with happiness” when a stranger gave her £2,000 for its life-saving operation.

Annamarie Day credits her tabby cat Tumba with saving her life when she sank into a deep depression several years ago, and was distraught when he went missing on New Year’s Day this year.

Ethan Millard and Alex Kirry watch another amazing episode of Studio 5 with Brooke Walker.  They enjoyed another great recipe from Becky Low: pineapple upside down cake bites.

Everyone loves pineapple upside down cake, and everyone loves cake bites and cupcakes.  So this recipe is an awesome idea.

The ingredients are what you expect: butter, brown sugar, maraschino cherries, and pineapple.  But Becky also adds a little twist.  She blends the pineapple juice into the cake mix.  No water.  Good move.

Ethan and Alex are huge fans of great food so Studio 5 is a natural favorite.  They do a lot of crafting, style, relationships, and home and garden tips as well.  That doesn't matter nearly as much as the food.

Ethan Millard and Alex Kirry are back to join Amanda Dickson and Brian Martin on Utah's Morning News for the very popular NewsMasters of the Universe News Quiz on KSL Newsradio.  The game starts out without a hitch with questions about Utah proposed legislation, BYU Basketball and Governor Gary Herbert's Kidney Stones but soon there is controversy as Ethan apparently answered correctly a story that the morning news team had been reporting incorrectly all day.  With this new wrinkle in the game, does Ethan or do you have what it takes to take down Alex on this week's new quiz?

Since returning from Disney World, Alex has not stopped talking about the Avatar ride. Ethan is tired of it, so why not let Alex take us through the ride so he will finally stop talking about it. Ethan is already sick 7 seconds into the video. You get hit with real mist and different animal smells. If you watched the movie, this ride will make more sense. Alex is blown away by how real the ride is. Ethan will ride the Avatar ride but will not see the movie.

Alex Kirry and Ethan Millard digest (see what I did there) the information from a new study out of the University of Southern California that claims a connection between obesity and the community that you live in.  Can you be fat because your neighbor made you that way?  Plus, a #zenheadlines story of DMX the rap artist who recently gave an impromptu sermon on Jesus Christ to some passengers waiting their flights at St. Louis airport in the Chili's TOGO.  He then wrapped things up by buying everyone a drink.  Not a bad way to make everyone feel good.

13-year-old singer/songwriter Evie Clair stopped by to talk with Nightside guest host Taylor Powers, just before she performed at the Music Lodge at the Sundance Film Festival, with tunes including Can't Stop the Feeling, Leaving on a Jet Plane, and her own song, For You. The finalist from NBC's America's Got Talent stole the hearts of viewers when her father became seriously ill - yet she never stopped making music, dedicating her competition to him. She tells Taylor she had a life-changing experience on the show and made a lot of friends. Her first performance was in Kindergarten. She wrote a song when she was six years old.

A new feature at the Sundance Film Festival is indie or independent episodic features - in other words, series instead of feature films. Ethan Millard chats with Caveh Zahedi, a filmmaker who is in the process of trying to make a TV show. As we follow along, Caveh becomes unhinged, burning through ideas and relationships at warp speed. THE SHOW ABOUT THE SHOW is painfully revealing, honest, and utterly captivating.

Zion Clark, a wrestler born without legs and raised in foster care, has never let his disability hold him down. As a child, some coaches approached him about giving wrestling a try, so he gave it a shot. Now, he just wants to inspire people that they can do whatever they want no matter the circumstance. And as the subject of a documentary short film at the Sundance Film Festival, more people are starting to learn Zion's story. 

ZION is directed by Floyd Russ, whose previous work has mostly been in commercials, music videos, narrative storytelling and virtual reality. ZION is his first documentary. He was nominated for an Emmy in 2017 and has won Titanium, Glass, and Gold Lions at Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. He is currently developing his first feature film and a serialized drama. 

Zion Clark now lives in Brooklyn with his wife and their asthmatic Siamese cat. And he's still very dedicated to his sport - he was in a hurry to finish our conversation so he could catch a plane to make it to his next match.

The Nightside Project has been so busy with Sundance going on in Park City.  Since that happened, Alex decided to go to Florida and Disney World.  Alex has never been to Florida before (other than one layover).  His brother lives in Orlando but it was the coldest it has been in over 14 years.  Which it was about 55 degrees.  His family does the Disney World thing and his expectations were low but realized how big it really is.  That is the first point as to why he prefers Disneyland over Disney World.  They went to Magic Kingdom and as you get farther into the place it is more "weird dreamy." They went on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride because there wasn't a line.  Animal Kingdom was next.  That was the best part for Alex.

#Zenheadline time.  There was two dogs that woke up their owners and tugging on their sleeves. The owners let their dogs outside and they went to an elderly woman who was laying in the snow because she fell.  They saved her life.
